Death of Mrs. Freeze
After an illness that has kept her confined for several months, Mrs. Christian Freeze, died at the home of her son, Ralph Freeze, Sunday evening last.
She was a native of Holland, being born in East Friesland in the year 1825. Mr. and Mrs. Freeze directed their steps to Grundy county in an early day, purchased a farm, improved it, and prospered by the diligent efforts that were made to improve themselves. They did well.
Her death which occurred Sunday evening was not unexpected; the infirmities of old age left her in poor condition to battle against disease; yet she fought valiantly to the end. Two sons, Ralph and John, and several daughters survive her. Her maiden name was Slight.
Funeral services will be conducted from the German Presbyterian church by Rev. Schmidt this Wednesday afternoon, at 1 o'clock.
